Facilitator: Theo Richardson-Gool of Cov360 Summary
The consensus is that COVID-19 is a biodiversity crisis which has provided the opportunity to consider healthcare preparedness as a present issue. Health, ecological concerns, and sustainability are interconnected issues which require a holistic approach. Using technology for social good, and rethinking business and the incentives in the economy are essential for a green recovery where public value is central to government planning.
